It's as much a sport as target shooting.
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

Exactly.

Any why is basketball included and why isn't baseball? Or maybe it is? Fuck all if I know.

And a host of other stupid ass "sports."

Baseball was a demonstration sport in 1984, Los Angeles. What baseball demonstrated to the IOC as I recall was that if baseball became an olympic sport, the Olympic Games would have had to have been extended by 3 days.

Is there a restriction on sports that are not widely enough played?

Baseball isn't played everywhere.

Looks like baseball and softball have come and gone and may be back again. And surfing and roller skating. Who knows?

I want to see speed shooting, combat/tactical three gun and competition eating.
